Distinct 4×4 Model
Orahi has developed the 4x4 model, an agile operating framework designed to streamline the enablement of IoT applications. This framework addresses the high failure rates of IoT projects by effectively managing their increasing complexity, ensuring adherence to timelines, and successfully navigating the IoT pilot phase.
The 4x4 model consists of four milestones that guide the project towards scalability and maturity in the market. By emphasizing a start-small approach, the framework encourages continuous iteration with stakeholders, customers, and users to drive ongoing improvement and development, ultimately delivering a valuable digital service.
